View Full Version : Reboot problem with SCSI startup disk

06-26-2001, 10:13 AM

I have a Power Mac. 7500 (604e processor) with 3 SCSI drives attached: an Apple internal HD and 2 external SCSI Seagate drives (model ST410800W, 8.5 gig.). The Apple drive is on its own bus. The Seagates are by themselves on a FWB Jackhammer SCSI card, properly terminated.

Recently I installed a new OS (9.1) on one of the 2 external drives, which I now use as the startup drive. I did update the disk drivers on the external drives using Charimac Anubis.

Everything works fine except when the machine is rebooted (restart). The computer will shut down and then begin restarting. After 10-20 seconds, the external drives freeze and the process stops. You then have to shut the computer off, shut the ext. drives off, restart in the reverse order and everything operates correctly.

Any ideas?

Even the latest FWB firmware (V.1.4.5) is only certified compatible up to MacOS 9.0.2. You are probably seeing some sort of manfestation of the incompatibility of your JackHammer with OS 9.1.
